COVID Event Risk Model
Visit Flanders, the tourist office for Flanders, Belgium, in conjunction with Karel de Grote University College in Belgium and the Belgian Government, has created a COVID Event Risk Model (CERM) matrix for conference and meeting planners that want to organize events in Belgium. Planners can fill out a questionnaire focused on 20 parameters known to reduce the spread of the virus and will be able to gauge their trade show for potential risks. It can be accessed here.

COVID Act Now, a nonprofit organization that consists of a multidisciplinary team of technologists, epidemiologists, health experts, and public policy leaders working to provide disease intelligence and data analysis on any COVID threat in the US, has created an alert system that can help.
